Sample text

Increased FDG uptake following pleurodesis may be present for years after therapy. (Left) Axial CECT of a 52-yearold woman demonstrates a part-solid lesion in the right upper lobe with ground-glass ﬈ and solid ﬊ components. (Right) Axial fused FDG PET/CT of the same patient shows mild FDG uptake within the lesion ſt that is similar to mediastinal background and visualized soft tissues. CTguided biopsy revealed minimally invasive adenocarcinoma. Some malignancies, such as indolent adenocarcinomas and carcinoid tumors, may not demonstrate significant FDG uptake on PET/CT.

This appearance has been described as bubble-like or pseudocavitation. (Left) Axial NECT of an asymptomatic 90-year-old woman shows a left upper lobe nonsolid nodule that exhibits ground-glass attenuation. Note that pulmonary vessels ﬈ are visible through the nodule. (Right) Coronal NECT of the same patient shows to better advantage the spherical morphology of this nonsolid nodule ﬉. The nodule was unchanged on follow-up imaging. The differential diagnosis includes indolent malignancy, specifically lepidic predominant adenocarcinoma.

Part-solid nodules contain both solid and ground-glass components. Anywhere from 40-50% of part-solid nodules are malignant. In general, the solid component of the nodule corresponds to the invasive portion, whereas the ground-glass component often correlates with lepidic tumor growth along alveolar walls. Approach to Imaging Terminology Air Bronchogram Air bronchograms are air-filled airways visualized within a pulmonary abnormality that replaces surrounding alveolar air. With the advent of CT, the ability to visualize more peripheral airways gave rise to the term air bronchiologram.
